Behind Her Eyes

HOST: Meg Wolitzer


Host Meg Wolitzer presents three stories about social masks and what might lie beneath. Truman Capote’s gentle “A Lamp in a Window” introduces an eccentric character with a secret. It’s performed by Arian Moayed. In Molly Giles’ “What Do You Say?” a mother and daughter have lunch at a diner, and there’s more on their plates than food. The reader is Parker Posey. And novelist Zadie Smith channels the legendary singer Billie Holiday in “Crazy They Call Me,” performed by Karen Pittman.
